Nail Artist Q&A: "Nailed Down!" with Katina Stallworth-Flanagan!
Welcome to NAILPRO's NAILED DOWN where we “nail down” the details of selected nail design artists from our User Galleries.
This week we visit Las Vegas!
Meet Katina Stallworth-Flanagan:
Where do you work?
Classy Claws Nail Salon.
How would you describe yourself?
Tell us about how you got started in the nail industry.
I was just at home and thinking that I was tired of working for someone else and working the graveyard shift. I wanted two be my own boss and make my own hours so I could spend more time with my family. Nails had the shortest school hours! After working in a salon, I actually loved doing it and have been doing nails now for seven years.
What/Who inspires your work?
My customers. I usually do something that matches their personality.
Are there any tool(s) you can't live without?
My Striper Brush. I love it!
Do you have a favorite technique or style?
What tip can you offer to other nail technicians?
Do whatever comes to mind and you'll be amazed by what you get.
